Yes. You can FINALLY watch the locally made queer documentary film about our very own “RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Five” winner JINX MONSOON on a little watched cable TV network now mostly known for reruns of “All in the Family”, “Alice” and the only hit show the network ever had, “RuPaul’s Drag Race”.
It’s DRAG BECOMES HIM the little film chronicling the life of the Portland Oregon born/Seattle Washington based drag legend known alternatively as “Jinkx Monsoon” or by his boy moniker Jerick Hoffer. Originally a series of short films created before Jinkx became an international drag star via his television appearances, the film was directed by Alex Berry and produced by local producer Basil Shadid who also produced the queer films “heart breaks open” and “Re/volve”.
(It should also be noted that Mr. Strangeways is also an associate producer on this film. Basically, I fluffed the “talent”….)
Drag Becomes Him premiered here in Seattle at a sold out screening at the Cinerama two years ago and went on to appear in film festivals around the world and has already aired on television in other countries.
It will debut on the LOGO cable network this coming Thursday, April 13, 2017 at 8/7c.
Drag Becomes Him premieres on Logo. An intimate look into the life of #DragRace contestant Jinkx Monsoon. It follows the journey of a working class boy in a struggling family to an illustrious performer on a global stage.
We’ve been told that Ms Monsoon is filming an intro for the debut and she’ll also take over LOGO’s Instagram account on April 13th to hopefully post a lot about the film and not so much about LOGO’s other exciting shows…like reruns of “Alice” and “Soap”.
If you yearn to physically OWN a copy of this seminal film (which just between us gargoyles, is the best “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winner movie ever made…) you can buy it (or just rent it) via Amazon.com…go HERE to do so!
Oh, for anyone wondering, no one from this film is going to be buying a Mercedes from the proceeds earned by this film over the last two years including this telecast deal with LOGO…so don’t come asking us for a handout!
We’re tooling around in our new 1976 AMC Pacer we bought from our cut of the take…
